Career criminal Flint Foster has broken out of prison and been on the run for two weeks, successfully eluding capture by deceiving his pursuers into thinking he's headed to the border. Flint stops off at the ranchhouse of his law-abiding brother Roy and his pretty wife, Edie. They have just sold cattle for $1000 in gold in order to make their last payment, and when the Lone RAnger shows up, Edie hides the gold inside a cake she's baking. The ruthless Flint finds out about the gold but he hasn't figured out its hiding place... yet. Written by duke1029@aol.com

The Lone Ranger took out a cake from the oven wearing, what is assumed to be, leather gloves. He held it for a minute. Only a couple of minutes later, the outlaw picked the same pan up with his bare hands and made no indication of it being hot. See more »


Flint Foster: [after Roy has gone for his gun] I wouldn't do that again, Roy... even if you're my brother. I've killed men for less.

It takes the cake
24 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this episode, a bank robber and murderer has broken out of prison, killing two men in the process. The Lone Ranger hears and believes that he will try to go to his brother's ranch and give them trouble. Unfortunately, the brother fears the LR is with the outlaw and turns him away with a gun. Then after the outlaw arrives at his brother's house, he threatens their life when the LR and sheriff come to warn him.

There is a lot of money at the house, waiting to be taken to the bank to pay off the note. The wife hides it, and it's not too hard to figure out where when a lot of emphasis is put on the cake that's baking in the oven. There is, what I see as a mistake when The Lone Ranger takes the cake out of oven with what I assume are leather gloves. He holds it without any trouble to his gloves or his hands getting hurt. Only a couple minutes later, the outlaw holds it with his bare hands.

2 people assumed dead.
